So the first thing you might have noticed is it is not the most traditionally beautiful photo! It makes me laugh as it shows what it is like trying to get a beautiful shot of the kids and their characters.
I created this page based on the sketch over at the Studio this week - I reduced the size of the grid and added the title on the other side of my grid, but other than that I stuck fairly closely to it.
I used a mixture of Crate Paper lines - some DIY shop and Flea Market. I cut little 2" squares from a range of the papers, and then went about decorating, distressing and inking them. Starting from the top left and going across, I punched a heart and then made a shaker using acetate and seed beads, for the next one a couple of layers of paper and a prima bark star, the next a couple of lines of prima lace and a Pretty Party sticker. Onto the next line and a little banner made from twine and paper, the next I used some of the word strips on the Flea Market paper, the next was left plane as it is behind the photo. The bottom line I used the punched heart and piled some twine behind it and then added a prima wooden button to the top, for the next one I used some wood veneer chevrons from Studio Calico. I placed my photo inside the large polaroid chipboard shape you get with the Flea Market chipboard and added a golden heart. I then cut a few of the plates for the circle part of the sketch and added a little chipboard button and butterfly. The title is also from Pretty Party.
There is lots of inspiration over on the Studio blog here, and I am also up on the Tando blog today with a noticeboard here.
